Testimonials


As you know I have a number of boats including the Couta boat, the Chris Craft and an electric boat. I used to have an aluminium runabout that I replaced with a VSR Rib.

I have to tell you that it is the best investment I could have made and is one of the boats that I enjoy most of all. I use it to go to my 55ft motor yacht, to commute to the Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club, to go to Queenscliff, to take family and friends around the shores of Portsea all the way to Rye and Dromana.

It has just been a fantastic and versatile boat; very, very safe and even if it is windy, I can go out on this boat and not get wet. At 10 knots, 20 knots and 30+ knots I still don't get wet!

It is easy to drive and for the level of investment, provides very versatile usage. It is even good to go calamari fishing in!

I have tested the boat in all sorts of different conditions in the bay and have always felt safe; even in 1.5 meter waves I don't get wet!

A fantastic craft and congratulations; I'm glad I bought one

I'm in awe of these new VSR Ribs. Their design and construction are a break through in terms of sea going capabilities. They've totally revolutionized light displacement high speed powerboats. To think that you can travel at nearly top speed on a 20 knot seabreeze day with 5 foot seas, not get wet AND stay in control is amazing!

For our Emerging Nations Program that we are running as a lead up to Perth 2011 we needed two RIB coach boats. From a coaching point of view the vertical bowed VSRs were an obvious choice. They are capable of keeping up with a RSX board sailing over 20 knots and at the same time keep the coach dry. They are well built, economical and even came in our aqua blue colour.
